“If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn’t need to lug around a camera.”

Lewis Hine

Who is CocoMichko?

Cocomichko, aka Biljana MICHEL, is a selftaught, curious and sensitive photographer. Born in Yougoslavia, she now lives in the heart of the Beaujolais region and works in Lyon, perfect places for her photography.

She catches details we most of the time do not pay attention to, plays with contrasts and perspectives to reveal emotions and unveils all our little foibles that make us so human. If the “street photography” is her favorite playground, nature, landscapes and animals are subjects she tenderly and sincerely loves.
